      Greetings from the Shire of Nordenfjord in Rockland county NY!

      We invite you to join us on Saturday 10/26/13 for our Shire’s INAUGURAL event – a Novice Schola.  This is a truly historical happening as Rockland county NY returns to our roots from the forest from whence it sprouted its first oak.

      In the afternoon we will host a Queen's Tea with Her Majesty Avelina Keyes of Lockwood and Vicereine Johanne i Visby from the Crown Province of Ostgardr.  Her Majesty will welcome questions about protocol and SCA history.  This is a great opportunity for new people to have an informal visit with the Queen and ask all the questions they need!   We are asking everyone  to possibly consider making/bringing baked goods such as cookies for the Queen's Tea if at all possible.

      A special Fundraiser will be held.  A one of a kind, custom piece of jewelry to be created and offered up for sale by silent auction - a pin rendered in copper featuring the Viking vessel from the Shire device and handmade by our own Gretta Coerfan (Margo Konikoff, a professional jeweler and member of our Shire).  Own a piece of history as only one will ever be made.  You can see her work here:www.MargalitaDesigns.com
